Passport, Visa & Entry Requirements

Package: Singapore, Hong Kong & Bali Adventure

Information by Destination

China

U.S. citizens must have a passport which is valid for at least eight months after your return date, though we recommend at least a year.

U.S. passport holders must have a visa to enter China, obtained prior to arrival. Applications must be submitted through a fee based visa service such as our preferred provider, Visa HQ, or in person at the China Embassies or Consulates in the United States. See the U.S. Dept. of State website for more information.

We will send a visa support letter and instructions for U.S. passport holders to obtain your visa through VISA HQ after you have completed your registration form and made your final payment, approximately 60 days prior to departure. Please apply for your visa only after receiving this letter.

If you do not hold a U.S. passport, you are responsible for determining all entry requirements and obtaining any necessary visas. Consider using an expedited visa service.

Indonesia

U.S. citizens must have a passport which is valid for at least six months after your arrival date.

U.S. passport holders no longer need a visa to enter Indonesia for tourist stays up to 30 days when entering at one of the following ports of entry: Soekarno-Hatta, Ngurah Rai, Kualanamu, Juanda, Sri Bintan Pura, Batam Center, Sekupang, or Tanjung Uban. Otherwise, U.S. passport holders must have a visa to enter Indonesia. See the U.S. Dept. of State website for more information.

If you do not hold a U.S. passport, please see the entry requirements.

Singapore

U.S. citizens must have a passport which is valid for at least 90 days after your return date, though we strongly recommend at least six months.

U.S. passport holders do not need a visa to enter Singapore for stays up to 90 days. See the U.S. Dept. of State website for more information.

If you do not hold a U.S. passport, please see the entry requirements.

Bali

You will need a passport that is valid for at least six months beyond the date of your arrival in Indonesia. Your passport must also have two blank pages, not including endorsement pages.

U.S. passport holders may apply for visa exemption. This is a stamp you receive in your passport when you arrive at the airport. There is no fee. If your purpose of travel is purely for tourism and you are certain that you will depart after 30 days, consider requesting Visa Exemption. U.S. citizens who enter Indonesia under Visa Exemption must depart after 30 days; no extension is allowed and no adjustment to another visa status is permitted.  See the U.S. Dept. of State website for more information.

If you do not hold a U.S. passport, please see the entry requirements.

Hong Kong

U.S. citizens must have a passport which is valid for at least one month after your return date, though we strongly recommend it be valid for at least six months after your return date. U.S. passport holders do not need a visa to enter Hong Kong for stays up to 90 days. However, a visa is required for entry to all other areas of China. See the U.S. Dept. of State website for more information.

If you do not hold a U.S. passport, please see the entry requirements.

General Requirements & Guidelines

  • We provide visa & entry requirement information for the convenience of our travelers, and we try to keep it up-to-date. Ultimately, however, it is your responsibility to determine the passport and visa requirements that apply to you and to comply with them, including securing proper travel documents by the required deadlines and carrying them with you. Requirements are subject to change, sometimes without notice, and we suggest you verify them with the relevant embassy or consulate, the U.S. State Dept (if you're a U.S. passport holder), and/or with an expedited visa service such as VisaHQ. Airlines and cruises may deny boarding, your trip may be disrupted, and travel insurance may not cover your losses if your passport and visa are not in order.
  • To travel abroad, U.S. citizens must have a passport. In general, it should be valid for at least six months after your return date, and passports expiring before then should be renewed as soon as possible. We recommend that passports contain at least 2 blank pages for each country visited. If your passport does not have this many pages, you should obtain a new passport as soon as possible.
  • Any changes in names or passport information should be reported to us immediately. Airlines and cruise ships may deny boarding if the name on your passport does not match your tickets.
  • Minors (age 17 or younger) departing and/or returning to the U.S. without parents or with only one parent may be required by U.S. Customs & Border Protection (CBP) to present a notarized parental consent letter and/or unabridged birth certificate (more information). Many other countries have similar entry requirements, especially for minors traveling with a parent/guardian with a different surname; check with the consulates of all countries you'll be visiting to learn more.

Expedited Visa Service

Need to obtain your own visas? Though it is possible to obtain a visa directly from an embassy or consulate, we generally recommend using a fee-based visa service, such as our preferred provider, VisaHQ. Here's why:

  • It is much easier and faster to arrange your visa through a service.
  • You can complete the entire process online, including all forms.
  • Your information is stored on a secure server and can be re-used for multiple visa applications.
  • For a nominal cost, you enjoy professional and expert handling of your visa application. If there's a problem, a specialist with contacts at the various consulates will ensure you get your visa in a timely way.
